Thanks to my Dad for gifting me this Black Mammoth Winter Ale from Fernie Brewing Co.  Today’s beer is in a 650ml bottle and weighs in at 8% alc. vol.   Looking at the ingredients on the side of the bottle I see some unexpected additions – cocoa and curacao orange peel.  I’m liking the sound of that.

The beer pours like a stout – very dark.  Just under a thumb of head which reminds me of the crema on top of an espresso.  The beer has a molasses like aroma – slightly sweet and chocolaty with a bit of citrus.

Tastes much like it smells.  Not overly sweet, this is a nice beer – probably good for after dinner sitting around the fire or the log channel. 😉

Cheers and see you on Beermas Day 09.
